Librans are known for their love of beauty, their instinct for grace and their easy socialising. But I also think they love a fight, or at least a good argument…

Mrs Libra Says No No No
Happy Birthday Mrs. T. Enjoy the Iron Lady in her element. When Mrs Thatcher said no she meant no, displaying all the qualities of a truly hard-core Libra. Of course, it helped having Saturn smack on her Scorpio ascendant. Boy, she can really kick ass. Can you see what makes her so storming?

Libra: The Iron Fist in the Velvet Glove
Vladimir Putin – Russian president and Libra You know, when I read about Librans in most astrology books I only half recognise them. I mean that fairly precisely. I recognise the need for beauty, the ability to accessorise, the instinct for grace, the love of socialising, but the [...]

Venus the She Warrior
Bright blue Venus seems suspended in the black branches of my neighbour’s cherry tree these evenings. When I tuck my daughter into bed, I look out her window and see the planet shining more brightly and steadily than anything else in the sky.I am looking west. Venus is in her guise as [...]

The Day of Atonement
Jews praying on Yom Kippur (1868) by Maurycy Gottlieb courtesy of Wikimedia Commons. The wheat is threshed, the apples are picked. It’s time to weigh and measure this year’s harvest. And I mean that metaphorically. We’re coming to the end of the the ten days that observant [...]

Barter = Commerce Libra Style
I could trade some apples. I’m rather pleased. I have just arranged to exchange astrology lessons for acupressure sessions. I like barter as a form of exchange. You don’t have to get any banks involved – nor any middlemen, sales reps or big corporations. The scales of Libra are [...]

Mahatma Gandhi
Born on October 2, Mahatma Gandhi epitomised that wonderful Libran quality – grace. He also had Scorpio rising with Mercury, Venus and Mars in the first house: tenacity, bravery and the ability to find the right words to expose flimflam and woolly thinking. Here’s a link to piece [...]

Astrology of Now: Coming Up For Air
Ophelia by John Everett Millais. We’ve been deep in the dark waters of Scorpio lately. You may have been diving for pearls, but sometimes it gets quite hard to breathe down there – all that psychodrama can be suffocating. Breathe easy now. Venus slipped backwards out of Scorpio and into [...]

Equal Rights for Goddesses?
As you know, there are seven heavenly bodies in traditional astrology. The boys – Sun, Mercury, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn. The girls – Moon, Venus. Five against two. Now does that seem fair to you? Does that even seem like life? Ceres, goddess of fertility, is sometimes assigned to [...]

A God for Every Sign – yay
I find reading old astrology books a very good way to get to sleep. Dane Rudhyar is marvellously soporific. I hope some of it will filter into my dreams, and be reborn as a brilliant insight. Last night I turned to CEO Carter, who is an old stand-by in the wee small hours. And in […]
